full of bugs. most americans knew the term flea market by thes, but markets in the u.s. have really boomed since the late '60s. in 1997, sheila zubrod, a writer in new york city, put together a guidebook titled "flea." she's thought a lot about flea markets and what makes them work. zubrod: objects have emotional significance for us, and that's one of the things that i think that's fascinating about flea markets is you go and find what you respond to emotionally and you learn a lot about yourself. sebak: one market she knows well is the weekend one in manhattan along 6th avenue from about 24th to 26th streets. zubrod: i like to walk around. you're outside. it's sort of social. i run into people i know. it's a very friendly, welcoming environment. it's called the 26th street flea market. it works here because it's right in the center of manhattan. woman: it's really been the main flea market in the country for years and years, and now it is changing. there's so much building. i find it hard to believe that this parking lot will be here very long, but as long as it is, it will definit

(explosions) >> narrator: the assad regime's response was to attack the stronghold of syria's muslim brotherhood, the town of hama. >> in 1982, the syrian regime launched one of the worst massacres in the history of the middle east. the regime used artillery to level large parts of the town. between 10,000 and 30,000 people were killed or were disappeared. >> that was a very stark moment in which the alawite-dominated regime, the ba'ath party, made it clear to syria that it would not brook any opposition. >> it was a ruthless, obviously machiavellian way to deal with the problem, but it did deal with the problem from the perspective of the syrian regime, because until recently, you really haven't had any serious islamist opposition to hafez al-assad or h
. we're just passing very quickly from a sniper alleyway. >> narrator: his destination-- m s seen se of the fiercest fighting, salahuddin. (gunfire) >> we're really on the edge of salahuddin. the free syrian army had been retreating heavily in the past couple of days-- they've been losing men, they've been losing ammunition. this is the last stand in salahuddin. they've just got reinforcement, trying to protect the next neighborhood after salahuddin. >> narrator: the man who coordinates the 150 fighters in this key sector is abu mohammed. >> abu mohammed is a very, very important character, a member of the aleppo military council. through him brand new ammunition, brand new weapons are being channeled into the rebels. >> narrator: he was asking the fighters to stand firm.

's incurable. back in the mid-1980s, i had reported on the work of a young stanford neurologist named bill langston, who had come across something startling that seemed to cause parkinson's. now, more than 20 years later, i've headed back to bill langston's parkinson's institute. since the 1980s, langston and his team have pursued whether environmental toxins might trigger the disease, a quest quest that began with a most unusual patient. >> it really started with my getting called to see a patient who had developed parkinson's literally over two or three days. and he was young; that's not typical. it came on quickly; that's not typical. so he was a true medical mystery. >> can you raise this hand up at all? can you raise that hand up? >> he was literally frozen like a statue. >> i can see you trying. >> so i knew instantly we had a neurologic condition on our hands, but what? we had no idea. >> narrator: what langston and his team were about to discover would turn the parkinson's world upside down. >> in taking history, we asked him if he was on any medications, and to our shock, he wrote
the pebble deposit. the main concern is the lake clark fault, which the u.s. geological survey shows pointing towards the mine site. >> the usgs mapped it as far as the southwest end of lake clark, and from there it's about another 15 or 20 miles to the mine site. so that's where that's the big question mark here, is-is what happens in that 15 to 20 miles. >> narrator: pebble maintains that the fault either terminates or bypasses the mine site. >> we did a sort of electromagnetic flying of that fault, and actually it turned out to go in a different direction than people thought it did. so we have mapped that. that fault has not been active for, i think, over 11,000 years. so we really don't think it's a threat. >> narrator: still, pebble says they are designing their structures to withstand a magnitude 7.5 earthquake on the lake clark fault. >> survey all these little beach features, river features, and so on... >> narrator: but critics like higman point out that pebble won't release the more sophisticated mapping data that might support their claims. >> so if they design a facility with very
